The software for the 9XR first began development 6 years ago. Since then it has been tweaked, tuned, changed, updated and revamped by members of the R/C community into a powerful - yet easy to use interface. Our engineers designed the physical product around the R/C communities software changes and input. The culmination of all these is the Turnigy 9XR!
For many users this will be the perfect 9 channel radio straight out of the box, but there are many tinkerers out there who love modifying and pushing the boundaries of what is possible from their radio.We have factory fitted the 9XR with an AVR ISP header to simplify the development of custom software, we have launched turnigy9xr.com as the epicentre for software developers and additional community support for all 9XR users......With the 9XR we encourage it!
The 9XR is supplied preloaded with top quality software which is full of features and yet remains easy to use. Our aim was to develop a radio for you, the hobbyist,with an extensive list of standard features usually expected from a radio system 3 times the price. Our Turnigy 9XR is everything you imagined and more!
9XR Standard Features: • 8 Channel PPM/9 Channel PCM • Full Ball Bearing gimbals • Adjustable Stick Length • Digital Trims on all Primary Axis • 16 Model Memory • Assignable Switches • Freely Assignable Channel Mixes • Graphical Dual Rate and Exponential • Sub Trim and Travel Adjust • Flaps and Differential • Throttle Hold • Supports Heli/ Aero/ Glider Model Types • Programming Templates Based on Model Type • Supports M1, M2, M3, M4 stick modes • 128 x 64 backlit Liquid Crystal Display • Built in JR & Futaba Trainer Ports • PPM & PCM Output • JR Form Factor RF Modules (Orx Dsm2, Orx Open LRS 433Mhz etc) • Programmable Timers • Low Voltage Warning and Buzzer • Supports 3s Lipo (Required) • 9XR Firmware Pre-loaded • AVR ISP Interface • Internal 2.4GHz Antenna

boa noite gostaria de saber se você*s tem disponí*vel o 9xr modo 2 .e valor
eu estaria comprando vá*rios componentes para uma asa zagi,estou começ*ando agora você* pode me orientar na compra dos materiais a serem comprados e valores e como mandaria,em duas etapas ou nã*o.
At funinthefalls: The 9X module in it's stock configuration WILL NOT fit and function in the 9XR without modification! The wire from the 9X antenna passes through the back of the radio and is soldered to the module. It is not rocket science to desolder the antenna lead from the module and attach the antenna to the module itself, but it will not simply detach and be usable in a 9XR. To Amatai: search youtube for a tutorial on modifying the 9X module. Anyone with basic modelling skills can perform the task.
Depends on several things: In terms of link robustness there will be no difference in the radios when using a FrSky module & Rx in the 9XR. The Taranis has OpenTx installed (the 9XR can be flashed with it as well) but most users find it a steeper learning curve than ER9x (the stock 9XR firmware). The Taranis has more features (SD card, built-in telemetry on screen, speech, etc.) but this of course is reflected in the price. If you are impatient, you will probably be able to get a hold of a 9XR/FrSky combo sooner than the Taranis as they are consistently out of stock. I use both radios and like both. I bought the 9XR before the Taranis but there is no appreciable difference in how the planes "feel". It is just a matter of taste and the size of your wallet.
If i want to have the 9XR with telemetry i have to buy a module for about 70$ (including tax and shippment).
plus 78$ for the 9XR ( from Europe with shipping) makes together 150$ a receiver included.
Taranis without receiver at this time about 230$. Difference in price is not so much. Good for the 9XR is that spares are available cheap.
What is about the dead spot of the sticks at the 9XR?
Looking for my first radio(besides what came with the RTF). My question is... Is the 9xr easy to use? Easy to program, easy to install module, etc? Having a tough time deciding between this, the OrangeRX and the Tactic TTX650. Just don't want something that isn't pretty intuitive to use.
For a 2.4ghz band tx / rx combo get a frsky, i hear the orange one's arent that good, could be wrong. This is a module radio which is the only thing harder then a rtf radio, just have to find a module you like and plug it in. As far as programming, fairly straight forward, i setup some software switches for my APM using a youtube example, if you want just basic switches thats super easy to.
Overall great, does everything I need I to, a lot of people spend over a hundred on a radio when this one does everything you need it to (take your thumb movements into a signal!) I would recommend!
I, along with someone else I know, received our 9XR today. The gimbals feel MUCH nicer, and it is a big improvement. It fits the product ID : ZIP25003S3C nicely. The balance connector should be farther down, because it puts a little stress on the wires. Haven't actually flew with it yet, as I am waiting on my DJT module.

Wooww, T9xR is t arrived. Looks a little funny. Not really nice but I'll get used to it. I use the Nano Tech 3s 2500mA Lipo from the old T9x. But I had to extend the balancer. Soldering is announced. I use the Corona module with CR8D's receivers, has arrived today. This works very well. (Set a range of about 2 km have) The T9xR lies well in the hand, but it is not a sensation for the 6 years of development time. But it works, the software is good and I'm satisfied. For only $ 49 almost a gift. I was in the air now with my big Quad and must say, its no difference to the old T9xR, a little trimming and is like before. Only the new FW, i like it.

likes:- looks good , display is brighter than 9x , sticks have a better feel , takes a standard 3s lipo jst connector , which means pretty much any 2200mah 3s battery will fit.
Dislikes :- "star" selection button is poor . 12v charge socket goes direct to lipo jst connector , no ballancer so lipo will be damaged if you connect an industry standard tx charger to it. software isn't compatable with "companion 9x" so you can't connect it easily to a pc or load your existing models to the radio without wiping 9xr hex file.

Great radio. much better quality that the 9X. It definitely looks better in person compared to the pictures IMO. the gimbals feels good. switches feel really good. the whole ergonomics of the 9XR is OK, felt better. battery bay is quite big but the connector is not in an ideal place. Here is my review on youtube http://youtu.be/VH37smjFk94

Much nicer than the 9x. Nice bright screen. The switches seem to be easier to reach. Battery compartment is improved with the included piece of foam. Plastic handle feels more solid than the 9x's thin metal tube. Gimbals feel like they are higher quality. The power switch doesn't feel so cheap either. Once you put a battery in it the weight is not bad and it has a solid feel. Also like having both Futaba and JR trainer ports. The only thing I would change would be to remove the exclamation point after READY.
